Great Home Materials

Your Home Starts with You

Your home is a canvas. A canvas is meant to be altered. Moving into your new home means that it’s time for you to take a good look around, think about what amazing additions you would like to make to your home, and start putting those changes into action! When you’re planning these new changes to your wonderful new home, consider that you will have a whole bunch of wonderful options of which you may not have heard. Take your time, research, and talk to the providers and installers of the materials for your home about the ups and downs of the different materials that you’re considering for your home.

Bamboo Floors

Bamboo is a wonderful material. Besides the fact that they are very yummy to adorable panda bears, bamboo trees have so many other uses. Bamboo is made into a variety of materials. You’ll find it in pillows, sheets, and shirts, but you will also find it in paper, plates, and mugs. Bamboo is also an excellent candidate for wood flooring. Since bamboo grows and matures very quickly, a crop of bamboo can be quickly harvested and processed into flooring for your home or business. There is a growing industry surrounding bamboo flooring. Sustainable, durable, and attractive, bamboo flooring is quickly gaining popularity for its close resemblance to hardwood, and availability. Choosing bamboo for your home is choosing an environmentally friendly material that will last beautifully.

Limestone Pool Deck

Limestone is a great material that has been popular across Europe for thousands of years. Limestone is a naturally-occurring stone comprised of the calcified remains of sea animals. From limestone comes marble, which is created when limestone is subjected to intense heat and pressure for long periods of time. Because of its beauty and strength, limestone has been long revered as an ideal building material for private and public-use spaces. Limestone covers the obelisk in Washington D.C., and can be part of your home for a luxurious pool deck that doesn’t grow too warm in summer, and a patio that feels soft on your bare feet.

Plaster Walls

Plaster seems like an ugly, awkward ingredient, but don’t underestimate what it can do for your home. Plaster insulates, and holds a home together easily. It is important to be careful with the material, but it is also important to make sure that you protect your home from leaks, as plaster will foster an environment hospitable to vermin if exposed to water.

Marble Fountain

Few else gives both luxury and tranquility like the sound of water pouring over smooth, beautiful marble. You can choose any color you like for a marble fountain; don’t feel restricted to white. The luxury of having your own fountain is an escape from the stressors of the world around us all, and reassurance that you’re doing your best when you walk through your front door. Having a combination of marble and limestone will make your home the greatest place in the world!
